  35. Are there any specific rules to break the fast as well ?

    What i understood from this article is that fasting is very much related to detoxification of the body & health due to changing climate during Navratri period..

    By Puneet Agrawal at October 18, 2012 at 6:01 pm
  36. You can break your fast on Navami. Before breaking the Upavas you should perform Devi Udwasana Puja and chant Devi Apada Uddaraka stotram.

    Devi Apadoddaraka stotram’s main purpose is to pray the Goddess to forgive us for any faults that we have done during the fast and puja.
